Al-Jazeera is buying Current TV, and Time-Warner announced it is dropping Current TV. Just one more reason I’m happy I don’t subscribe to Time-Warner.
I run into Al-Jazeera reporting a lot when I’m checking out news from Asia. I believe Al-Jazeera does a better job covering the problems with Tibetan Buddhism in China than any western news service I can think of. Certainly there’s no hint in their Asian reporting that they have any kind of jihadist agenda, although try telling that to Pam Geller.
It will be interesting to see what Al-Jazeera does with Current. More news, less opinion?
